WAHALLA, S.C. -

The Oconee County Sheriff's Office latest effort to draw attention to unsolved crimes includes the murder of Clemson student Brooke Holsonback.

The 16-year-old unsolved case centers around the Clemson freshman who was found in Lake Hartwell back in February of 1997.

Investigators say she was strangled.

There were two persons of interest in the case who told investigators that they were four-wheeling.

Her father, Warren Holsonback, wants justice for Brooke.

"I always have hope, now 16 years is a long time but I really think eventually it will be solved," he said.

The Oconee Sheriff hasn't given up either.

"Stacy's family and the investigators involved in this case remember it as if it happened yesterday," Sheriff Mike Crenshaw said in a news release. "We will never give up because we know there is someone out there that can provide the information we need to close the case."

If you have any information call Crimestoppers 1-888-CRIME-SC or text a tip to 274637.
